Sister Jessie Mirco was born May 2, 1929 and went to be with the Lord on September 20, 2014 at the age of 85. Due to the rigors of life she raised her four brothers and sister from the age of nine. She was baptized and was filled with the Holy Spirit under the evangelism of Bishop Daniel Jauhall in Los Angeles, California. Bishop Antonio C. Nava was her first pastor. God used his ministry and counsel to prepare her for her own calling, without her knowing the Lord’s plans.
She married Bishop Ramón Micro on September 12, 1955; they had just celebrated their 59th anniversary this year. Alongside her husband, she helped established the Apostolic Assembly in Torrance, California: After this, they caravanned to the state of Washington where they planted another church. Deeply involved in evangelism, she would visit the local prison, share the Word of God and render songs to the prisoners as they looked forward to her visits and delicious homemade burritos. Her husband was called to be Bishop Supervisor of the Northwest District, a district that included the states of Washington, Idaho and Utah, and she was his ideal helper in this capacity too.
Upon returning to California, they were installed in the First Apostolic Assembly in Fresno, California and in the years that followed established the Second Apostolic Assembly there. A “Woman of Virtue,” she was caring, devoted, and compassionate, with a listening ear and at all times speaking wise counsel. She was a Sunday School Teacher, with some of her students becoming future leaders like, Bishop Adam Lopez from Union City, CA, among others. Passionate for international missions, she raised abundant funds for “Flor Azul.”
Her husband wants everyone to know that “she was his right hand and she was a great role model to others because she always put others first.” She was an exemplary Pastor’s and Bishop’s Wife, helping and present beside him as he preached the Apostolic message.
